Shoulderstand lotus in November 9th 2017. Shoulderstand lotus was the first leg variation I did in shoulderstand or  Salamba Sarvangasana. Sanskrit designation is  Padma Sarvangasana. I have h
Shoulderstand lotus (Padma Sarvangasana)
Lolasana in November 10th 2017. I've found the best way to get crossed legs here is to start lolasana as usual, hold for a couple of seconds and then cross ankles. I can hold for about ten seconds now, maybe I go for ankle switches next time :)
Lolasana (Pendant Pose)
Lotus pose in November 11th 2017. I can't make a full lotuspose without using my hands, or rise into headstand from seated lotus. But forming a half lotus in midair works, so I bring that, and

Elephant Trunk Pose in November 16th 2017. Haven't done this much, but it's fun, a good strength builder if you extend the leg, and also a good preparation for eight angle pose.

Eka Pada Sirsasana in November 17th 2017. Getting foot behind head, standing up and have back vertical feels pretty far ahead, so I bring a sitting approximation.

Bird of Paradise in November 18th 2017. It's my very first practice for  Birdof Paradise or  Svarga Dvijasana. My friend @omniyogagirl has a great tutorial for this one, reposted by @yogaalignment.

Eka Pada Sirsasana in November 19th 2017. This variation is new to me, and I did first expect to get something similar to my day 17 post. But I decided to give it a try to lift my butt off the

Side Plank Pose in May 6th 2018. It's actually exactly one year since I did my first  Vasisthasana. I still think of this as an utthita hasta padangusthasana lying on the side, or actually tilted about 60 degrees.
